The GPL doesn't stop anyone from sharing (freeing) knowledge.
Actually, it has provisions ensuring that except if someone doesn't
abide the law you will never be stopped from sharing knowledge.

Other than that, I believe it is not good advice to break the law, so
use the law in means that are favorable to society.

Copyleft is a way to use copyright to ensure that the knowledge remains
